Victoria has introduced compulsory minimum standards for organisations that provide services for children to help protect children from abuse.
The Child Safe Standards form part of the Victorian Government’s response to the Betrayal of Trust Inquiry (the 2013 Parliamentary Inquiry into the Handling of Child Abuse by Religious and Other Non-Government Organisations).
Education, awareness raising and helping organisations to create and maintain child safe environments will be the initial focus of the Child Safe Standards.
The Child Safe Standards do not alter any existing requirements to hold a Working with Children Check.
